convinced mccain but his ideas did convince another influential politician, president obama. the two of them, president obama and chuck hagel toured iraq and afghanistan together in 2008. afterwards obama said in a they agreed on almost every foreign policy issue. there was even speculation that the president might tap hagel for vice president. well, that, of course, didn't happen but the president did get hagel's endorsement. maybe that's what accounts for some of john mccain's bitterness. mccain isn't the only one who is lining up against hagel though. senator lindsey graham, mccain mccain's new bff also took a shot. he brought up hagel's newest comment that, quote the jewish lobby intimidateed law makers. >> name one person in your opinion who is intimidated by the israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> well, first. >> name one. >> i don't know. >> why would you say it? >> i didn't have in mind a specific person. >> jennifer: that, too went on and on. after the hearing graham, who up until that point had been none noncommittal told foreign policy magazine that he was unlikely to vo
was addressing the issue he talked about president obama's record. he really didn't directly address. he said, you know, i have been a friend of israel. he didn't deny he made the statements. he couldn't. he deferred to president obama's record. i think that's the safest bet for him. he took the right tact in terms of the answer there. >> all right. fran townsend, thank you. appreciate it. >>> an oscar-nominated movie is finding a receptive audience in a surprising place. talking about "argo." hollywood's take on a real life mission to rescue american hostages from iran back in 1979. the film is officially banned by the iranian government. but apparently a hot commodity under ground. bootleg dvds are all over the place. there is reportedly much debate about the accuracy of the story. bootlegged movie distributors say it is the biggest seller in years. >>> real life story of egypt's revolution is being written but there is one thing that's clear. the young behind the arab spring uprising are afraid that their voices are still not being heard. their anger boiling over on the streets in days of
, that obama has found a soulmate on the issue of war. so with hagel as defense secretary, even though he served certainly during vietnam, a republican, what does it mean for american engagement in the world in the next four years? >> that it's going to be done in a much more careful way. clearly in my research on the first book i did on obama in talking with the president about the war in afghanistan, he, like hagel, has an aversion to war. he'll go to war, but in obama's famous nobel prize acceptance speech he made it very clear that war may be necessary, but it's always a manifestation of human folly. >> and the secretary of state john kerry has said they need to get the economic house in order as a first priority for national security. but look at syria and look at iran. where does the secretary -- the secretary of defense nominee and the president stand on iran? >> well, they're going -- you know, the policy is to prevent iran from getting the bomb. that is the most difficult policy to execute. it's not matter of containment. it's a matter of staffing it, whether that's going to be e

has a different view on gun control than president obama does. and he's the first to stand up on this issue in this way so we're going to play that momentarily, but i want to talk to you first about what's happening at the white house. the president saying i'm going directly to law enforcement and try to get their support for this. and sort of trying to go directly to the american people, which has been his approach. in the meantime though, his comments in the new republic are getting a lot of attention, chris. he was asked about how he's going to work with republicans, going forward, whether it's on gun control or immigration or what have you. and this is what he told the new republic. the interview was conducted by somebody who worked on his late campaign and contribute today his campaign and obviously a friendly interview. this is what the president said, one of the biggest factor is going to be how the media shapes debates. if a republican member of congress is not punished on fox news or by rush limbaugh for working with the democrat on a bill of common interest, then you
